The ghosts of Grosse Ile
On of the major ports for Irish Famine immigrants, Grosse Ile is in the St. Lawrence River, just east of Quebec. It contains the largest Famine cemetery outside of Ireland.
Parcs Canada maintains information on 554 children baptized at Grosse Île between 1832 and 1937. Some of those babies listed below for the year 1847 may have been born aboard ship.
